Hi Divers

It looks like we have another big southerly heading our way just in time for the weekend. We will still head out for club dives in the harbour.

Congratulations to all our newly certified divers:

Hi Divers

The South Coast is always impressive. One day it can be flat calm seas with fantastic diving and the next day the sea is lapping at the carpark with 6 meter swells. While it’s great to watch, unfortunately it has ruined the diving for the weekend.

We did manage to get a few good days of diving in before the southerly hit, congratulations to all our newly certified divers:

Open water divers: Jinyi Tan, Emily Keana, Shawn Sturland, Craig Hale,

Advanced open water divers: Jack Buckley and Donnacha O Suilleabhain

The wind looks like it will be northerly for the weekend so the South Coast should be good for diving.

Hi Divers

The neverending theme seems to be southerly swell on the South Coast. This week we had some massive waves on the coast with a 19.4 meter wave recorded in the Southern Ocean. The water temp is around 12 degrees at the moment, but that didin't stop our Diploma students Tess and Rhy celebrating their 100th dive, with a naked dive in Kau Bay. Best of luck to Chris, Tess, Rhy, Quazar and Richard who sit their instructor exams this weekend, you guys will nail this.

Hi Divers

The southerlies are back again. I can't remember a worse year for diveable days on the South Coast. In saying that, we are still crazy busy teaching divers.

Dive News: Fri 12 May 2017

Hey Divers

Sorry for the late newsletter this week, we have been swamped with loads going on.

The weather still hasn't been ideal but we have managed a few good days of diving on the South Coast. This weekend doesn't look much better with southerlies all weekend.
